    I may add more to this but I dunno I think this is everything

    Now this is the story all about how my life got flip-turned upside down:

    It all started when I heard this game through various places, mostly seeing the KS thread get some popularity here, and RPS doing a few stories on it too which got me somewhat piquing interest in this I suppose. I told you before but I'm not really into anime and stuff like that, the only anime I watched was Dragon Ball Z, Full Metal Alchemist and a few episodes of Cowboy bebop. I never played a VN before as well.
    After checking out what the shit this Katawa Shoujo bullshit was after it kept appearing at popular threads, I was like "HAH! Crippled girls? Who likes that shit, probably for weird weaboos and shit."
    I have posted my first impressions on reading the OP of the original thread before the game came out:
    http://www.facepunch.com/threads/114...1#post33860671
    That should give you a good idea on how much I thought this would suck/be weird.

    NOW on one afternoon, due to incredible boredom I decided to look through that thread again right about a week or two after release, then saw this masterpiece of art:

    Believing it was real (Also showing my complete lack of knowledge on the game), I was laughing my ass off on Skype with friends and they were obviously like where the fuck did you find that etc etc. By this point out of sheer boredom I was like "Crippled porn lets do this shit" and I was gonna livestream this piece of shit weaboo crap as well. Luckily my internet decided to be a piece of shit and not let me livestream, and my friends happened to be offline when I started this game, and my initial reaction to this can most readily be summed up with this:



    Until I saw Lilly.

    (fuck you thats not hanako its lilly)






    Part II:
    And then the feels hit.
    So pretty much you coulda guessed my first route was Lilly's, and the emotional (Yes I'm gonna say emotion rather than feels for now) wave of joy and happiness through the arc really REALLY REALLY was not what I expected. I didn't fall in love with Lilly or anything, but she was pretty much the first character I really felt emotionally stirring in a while. Maybe it's cos I somewhat loosened up on reading in the last couple of months or something, I dunno but really I totally did not expect ANYTHING similar to this when I first started this game. I didn't cry at the end but goddamn I was close to, maybe because it was 3am when I finished that may have had something to do with it.
    This complete change in my perspective of this game also had some sort of stir in me as well, and I felt what Hisao probably felt as this game progressed, his complete change of perspective of life heavily seeped onto me.
    I can safely say I was at a lower point in my life when I picked up this game too. Before this game, I just didn't really feel motivated in my life as much as now, which probably had a lot to do with my grades slipping a bit, probably the worst I had since quite a few years ago. I also had little hobbies, though I masked this with having 16 hour a week work to remove a lot of my free time, and although I didn't have friendship problems or whatever I was admittedly lost in what I was doing in life I suppose.
    So after the first arc, I asked the question a few of you asked yourselves. If Hisao (aka retard heart guy or whatever you wanna call him) can change his life around then I'm pretty sure I could to, cos you know what fuck Hisao can be retarded at times. So you know what, I decided to cut some hours of work, get back into reading again (But you know what fuck you David Webber you piece of shit), and although I'm still in holidays with 2 and a half weeks left of freedom, I'm determined to ramp up my studying so at least I can be pleased in my results.

    Also I found out French Vanilla tea is so fucking rad, so there's that too.

    Edited:

    Oh yeah and I wasted $5 on a title too I suppose.a

    You know, when I first stumbled upon this thread (I looked at it after misclicking on it) higher than a fucking kite, I sat there, read it, and went, ah okay, I'll download it but I don't think I'll play it or be interested that much (although I do have a liking for the anime artstyle). Being stoned, I forgot about it until late at night (12AM or so) and went, ahh what the hell, I might as well try it. I start it up, keep playing (No flowchart) and get Emi. I kept playing, and playing, and playing. I dunno if it was the drugs or what, but I was so fucking hooked. I felt so much fucking feel near the end (about halfway through I used the flowchart and fucked up without noticing so I got the    And we never talked again after that... ending    so I cried my ass off saying "no, god damnit no" and went back to the earlier stage and chose the RIGHT answer and cried my ass off saying "It's so fucking beautiful I love this game so much.

    I then went to bed being happy and having the music playing inside my head as I drifted off. The next day, I woke up, had breakfast, turned on my computer, and played Katawa Shoujo for 8 hours straight. I made it through 2 storylines. Good Hanako (which I really didn't like, TBH (ohgoddontkillme)) and Good Lilly. Holy shit the tears started fucking flowing when Lilly came about. After the scene at the    cottage    happened I felt so fucking good then when she    said she was leaving    I almost bawled out loud crying. When you go to the    airport in a last ditch attempt to say goodbye and you go HNNNNGGG    I fucking cried my ass off because I thought it was the end and then when I woke up in the    hospital and heard the music from the music box I thought "holy fuck Lilly is back this is the best ending ever   .

    Thank you Katawa Shoujo.

    I'm forcing myself to take a "tolerance Break" of sorts to I can go back to the game and possibly do Shizunes arc (pfff, not) and slowly read again through Lilly's arc (not so much that I analyze every line, but enough that I feel the music and the sentences and process them)

    Also, Hisao is a dumb fuck.

    God damnit. I wish I could erase all my memories from this game and approach it new so I can have the same feelings. I have a hunch that I know what I'm going to be doing on Valentines Day. :[

    ALSO I AM NOT AN OTAKU. iamnotaddicted

    Sidenote: I cannot get into Clannad for some reason. Maybe it's because Katawa Shoujo seems immensely better? :\

    I have the same sinking feeling that I'm going to be listening to Painful History and replaying all the endings on Valentine's Day.

    I imagine Hanakos voice more adult, I know if I were trying to hide my presence, I wouldn't breathing so heavily.


    E: too tired. I mean more smooth. Still fumbling over words, but less complete halts in her sentences.

    The "i'vegotagodosomething!" line was pretty good in my opinion.

    The reason they sound so calm and quiet is because that's the scene that takes place in the library where people are generally calm and quiet. She did say that it probably wouldn't meet people's expectations, you know. I think the voices they put on for the characters sound a little young, but otherwise it's fine. I'd like to see a scene outside of the library, with more conversation and less monologuing from Hisao, but oh well.

    Edited:

    Chapter four of With Apologies is up. There isn't as much mind-fuckery in this one, though Hisao is proving to be slowly going off the deep end. Enjoy, I suppose.
